HAYSVILLE, Kan. (AP) Police in the Wichita suburb of Haysville say two men wasted law enforcement resources and caused the lockdown of three schools by calling 911 and claiming to be victims of sexual abuse.
The Wichita Eagle reports the men, ages 20 and 21, were tracked down Tuesday through their cell phone calls to 911. Police say there was nothing to their claims they had been sexually assaulted.
The schools were locked down as a precaution for about an hour Tuesday because of the men’s claims. Police say the calls also tied up 911 dispatchers.
Both men were booked into Sedgwick County Jail on suspicion of interfering with a police investigation and giving a false alarm.
